Library Processing

MARC records are FREE from Perma-Bound with every title purchased. Simply let us know that you want to receive the free MARC records when setting up your processing profile with us.

You can feel confident with our MARC records, knowing that our certified librarians catalog each title with book in hand. Our records meet or exceed Library of Congress cataloging standards.

We provide MARC records for every title we carry, as well as all of our audio-visual products and multi-volume reference materials.

Additional cataloging and processing options available from Perma-Bound are listed below.
